Restaurant Dread

I'm having lunch with Matt today and he suggested Macaroni Grill. I'm off to the Macaroni Grill website to see what I'll be able to eat. I know the "grill" part of the name suggests I'll be able to find low carb items, and they have a section of the menu called Love of the Grill ... well, Amore De La Grill, but I also know they may baste the meat in honey or other carby no-no's.

THE RESEARCH (a few things that I might choose from and enjoy a small partial portion of)

18 carbs
Pollo Magro Skinny Chicken
grilled 6-oz. chicken breast on steamed spinach and topped with roasted tomatoes, onions and honey balsamic glaze

5 carbs
Mozzarella alla Caprese (3)
Imported buffalo mozzarella, vine-ripened tomatoes and basil with balsamic vinaigrette.

I had the pollo magro (skinny chicken) and asked the waiter if the chef would mind grilling my chicken breast without the honey glaze. They didn't mind. I also had asparagus and that was brave because Cro told me how much he HATES asparagus. Guess what? I LOVE asparagus. Wow. Yum.
